Steelers vs. Chargers: Did the Steelers save their season?
With the victory over the Chargers, have the Steelers turned things around?
I posed the question, “So what changed?” and said we would save that for the end. We are at the end of this discussion. So what changed? What did the Steelers do differently in the Chargers game to secure victory?
I think the win against the Chargers was a case of a desperate team knowing that it needed to win a road game in order to possibly save the season. I think it remains to be seen if that will be the case, but in the game against the Chargers, the Steelers were relentless on defense, were able to establish a run game on offense and were able to possess the ball longer than the opposition.
Didn’t we just find a formula for success? I think so. It’s no secret that if the Steelers defense can generate turnovers to set up the offense and if the offense can score points as a result of those turnovers, that usually means a win.
What also usually means a win is if the Steelers possess the ball more than their opponent. That is what happened on Sunday, and the Steelers may have saved their season as a result.
